Connected Speech

Connected speech, or connected discourse, in linguistics, is a continuous sequence of sounds forming utterances or conversations in spoken language. Analysis of connected speech shows sounds changes affecting linguistic units traditionally described as phrases, words, lexemes, morphemes, syllables, phonemes or phones. The words that are modified by those rules will sound differently in connected speech than in citation form (canonical form or isolation form).

Famous quotes containing the words speech and/or connected:

    Good speech need not be behind other’s backs; speech behind other’s backs is not good.
    Chinese proverb.

    Painting gives the object itself; poetry what it implies. Painting embodies what a thing contains in itself; poetry suggests what exists out of it, in any manner connected with it.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)
